Get Out More: Backpacker Magazine tour comes to REI Denver tonight

Need to get out more? Join the club tonight at 6:30 p.m. at REI Denver, where Sheri and Randy Propster from Backpacker Magazine will be stopping by on their 2011 Get Out More tour.

The Propsters are officially in town to talk about gear, traveling tips, America's best hikes and planning awesome outdoor adventures, but ask them for some relationship tips while you have the chance: The couple has completed through-hikes of the Appalachian Trail and the American Discovery Trail without driving each other insane.

They've been working their way through Backpacker's 2011 list of the Best Hikes in America on this year's tour, and you can ask them for some local tips, too, because this week they've been busy hiking the Four Pass Loop through the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness near Aspen (a Best Hike winner in the magazine's Reader's Choice awards in January).

There will be outdoor gear prizes at tonight's event, and you might even meet a new trail partner of your own while you're at it: Getting out more works wonders like that.
